Both 67 wagons are on ebay now

Selling off all but the 74 MS65 to make room for all my new cars!

Ebay item # 110688389200.

Off goes the Crown Sedan

Scott from LA had the identical car that he need parts for, so he bought mine and hauled it away. It will be reborn on his 67 Crown frame.

Car was a real pain to roll, but we made it happen with 3 people and about 2 hours of work.

Loaded and ready to starts its new life.

Sold off a Crown

Thanks Scott for flying up from LA JUST to look (and buy) this great 67 Crown that was saved from a South Dakota junk yard. Needs some TLC but Scott if up for the work. It is going to become an organ donor for his 67 sedan that has a great frame but bad body.

Frame is shot but he just needs the super nice body of it. Good thing since the suspension has nothing to attach to thanks to years of rust

Save everyone of these that we can!

New Year, new resolve

Or just back to reality. Have decided to sell all 3 Crowns to make room for the constant flow of new (old) cars that I seem to have a knack of finding. And I need the money to build a new garage to house all of these.

This is my newest find as on Jan 2nd, 2011. A time capsule in a 1977 Honda Civic, right here in West Seattle. Been in storage for 21 years and has a brand new engine, never even been started.

Winter is here, time to work on the Crown

Just got the new 16x24 shed built to house the 3 crowns for parts/dismantling.

I thought that I would restore the green wagon back to factory original but then decided to put in a 7MGE from a Cressida and make it a nice daily driver.

Another wagon

Had to do it... bought the 1978 Datsun 810 wagon with only 60k on it. I had to!

Car arrives tomorrow. Can't wait to have a poop brown wagon with wood grain!

Love that old j-tin.

I do love wagons

Saw this one on Craigslist on Sept 25, have to go look at it. LOVE the wood paneling on it. What better way to have a wagon from Japan... make it look American.

Who knows, may add it to my collection. After all it only has 60,000 miles on it.
